Primitive Reflexes & the Brainstem 1
Date: 20/04/18–22/04/18 Location: Madrid (es)
These courses explore the first reflexes present at birth and developed in utero from which are built the more complex coordinated functions of the nervous system during infancy and childhood. Proper integration of these reflexes in the first year of life ensures optimal development of neural function, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
As the nervous system develops and basic skills are learnt, reflexes are gradually integrated and evolve into complex neurological processes that produce well-adjusted responses to a wide range of stimuli. These advanced courses seek to analyse the results of inadequate integration of any of the primitive reflexes during infancy which often lead to learning and behavioural difficulties in later years. Specialised techniques are taught to target and release the long-term developmental stresses and facilitate late integration of reflexes.
This series of courses provides students with:
- Two major formatting systems for identifying and balancing stresses that have occurred during embryological and postnatal development;
- In depth information and balancing techniques for neurological pathways of each category of reflexes.
This course explores reflexes associated with balance through the vestibular system, proprioception and somatosensation. The various neurological pathways for each reflex are studied along with results of inadequate integration, clinical manifestations and postnatal balancing techniques.
